This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the second generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and probably also the updated 2017) Ford Fusion sedan in changing a burnt out vanity mirror light bulb in the sun visor.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicles such as the Focus, Fiesta, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Edge, Flex, Explorer, Expedition, Taurus, F-150, EcoSport, MKC, MKZ, MKS, MKX, MKT and the Navigator may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The OEM vanity mirror light bulb was marked with the part number TS-14V1.5CP36.

It can be replaced with a miniature "fuse" type bulb such as part number TS-14V1CP, TS-14V1.5CP, 6614F, ACDelco # 13502343 and the Putco 230003 LED.

The only tool needed to change the bulbs is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the translucent plastic lens cover.

Gently Pry Out Old Bulb

Old Bulb Removed
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the bottom edge of the lens cover and the housing.

Be careful when you remove the old light bulb. If it was recently turned on, it might still be hot enough to burn your fingers.

Either pull out the old bulb with your fingers or very carefully pry it out with the flathead screwdriver.

Only pry out the old bulb at the metal end caps.

Do not apply pressure to the glass part of the old bulb since it might shatter and send shards of glass flying in to your eyes and/or face.

Re-Insert Top Plastic Tab
The OEM bulb was covered with a light blue translucent plastic sleeve.

If you'd like to keep that blue light look, you may be able to slide the plastic sleeve off the old bulb and install it on the new bulb.

Push a new miniature fuse type bulb straight in to the socket.

A few compatible part numbers include the following: TS-14V1CP, TS-14V1.5CP, 6614F, ACDelco # 13502343 and Putco 230003 LED.

Tip - If you are installing LED bulbs and they don't work at first, try pulling out the bulb and flipping it around in the socket.

Close Mirror Cover
Re-insert the tab at the top of the lens cover back in to the housing first.

Then gently pop in the bottom edge of the lens cover back in to place.

Test the new vanity lights by opening and closing the mirror cover. If they don't turn on at first, try switching the ignition to "On" or press the "Unlock" button on the key fob.
